This free Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) 2-day workshop is for all caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

ASIST training will guide a caregiver through an intervention model for Suicide Prevention. Participants will learn how to connect with a person at risk, understand the person at risk’s choices and assist a person at risk with developing a safe plan.

Learning how to use the ASIST model will empower a caregiver to explore invitations to suicide, ask about thoughts of suicide, and intervene with the person at risk by helping them connect to a network of resources.
